Health and Social Care recommendations
Alhough the tribunal will not be able to make legally binding orders on health and social care, it has been made clear that their recommendations will generally be followed. The responsible health body or social care team must respond in writing to you within 5 weeks of the recommendation being made.
If a decision has been taken not to follow all or part of the recommendations, the health body or social care commissioner must give sufficiently detailed reasons for that decision.
